By Mark Lamport-Stokes SCOTTSDALE, Arizona . – Already established as one of the best players in the game, American Patrick Reed has set his sights on making a bigger splash at the majors this year while also improving his consistency week-by-week. The 24-year-old Texan has climbed to 15th in the world rankings after winning four PGA Tour titles during the past 18 months, a meteoric rise for someone who had not competed in a major until last season. “That’s the one missing piece for me right now, being able to contend and trying to win a major,” Reed told Reuters at this week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open. “I just want to keep improving, and have a chance coming down the stretch on a Sunday to at least make some noise at a major.” Reed clinched his fourth PGA Tour title at the winners-only Hyundai Tournament of Champions at Kapalua in Hawaii earlier this month, beating fellow American Jimmy Walker in a playoff.

By Bernie McGuire DUBAI, Jan 29 . – Rory McIlroy’s driving radar malfunctioned early in his opening round at the Dubai Desert Classic on Thursday but he showed why he is the world’s number one golfer by recovering to shoot a 66.

These days it’s sort of what I expect of myself.” McIlroy was accompanied by Ryder Cup team mate Martin Kaymer (67) and Englishman Andy Sullivan (65), winner of this month’s South African Open. “It was the best day of my life out there playing with these guys and I just enjoyed so much watching Rory and Martin play,” said Sullivan after setting the early pace with fellow countryman Lee Westwood and Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts.
